I found this cartoon..and had to share.  Such a sad year in the city of Chicago.  Many brave men and women-Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, Marines, CoastGuardsmen, Policemen, Firemen, Paramedics..they come from this wonderful city, protect this city and this country.  Many have made the ultimate sacrifice in the line of duty.

No matter what, everyone when they read the Chicago Tribune, or the Chicago Suntimes..turn on the news..  they hear about the brave sacrifices that these men and women make every day.  Sometimes we go about our business, other times we really look at it and go..."That brave officer was my neighbor" or maybe "That young man went to school with me".  Yes, it does hit that close to home for most Chicagoans.  That is why so many band together when tragedy hits.  They stop, say a prayer, and really reflect on what is important, and realize how grateful they are.  We truly are the Greatest City in the world. 

I had to share this with you, so you know that during this holiday season, there are many people standing the watch, patrolling the streets, fighting fires, saving lives, patrolling the desert, so we may enjoy our freedoms day to day.
